This morning, Sony set the internet on fire with its announcement that the a7R IV is coming in September.
Though the camera had been rumored for a while, two things took me (and everyone else, apparently) by surprise.
Introducing the all-new #SonyAlpha a7R IV. This full-frame camera offers the world’s first 61.0 MP full-frame image sensor, 15-stop dynamic range, continuous bursts up to 10 fps, and much more. Learn more: https://t.co/wK49RHyk7b pic.twitter.com/UVdSDyBWgS— Sony Alpha (@SonyAlpha) July 16, 2019
First, I didn't expect it to be coming so soon. Second, I certainly didn't think it would have a 61-megapixel sensor.
Yeah, you read that right...61 [email protected]#&ing megapixels!!!
Not to be outdone by Nikon and Canon and their recent forays into the mirrorless market, Sony evidently wanted to remind everyone that they are the mirrorless champions of the world.
Unsurprisingly, with a sensor that resolute, you can likely expect medium-format image quality, at least according to Sony.
If you've ever shot with an a7R III, you know how good its 42.4-megapixel sensor truly is - the detail is quite incredible.
That being the case, I can't imagine what this new 61-megapixel sensor will be capable of doing, though judging from the Sony a7R IV sample photos, it appears to be every bit as good as Sony claims.
According to Sony, the level of detail the sensor will produce will be "extraordinary."
Here's a few more a7R IV specs as announced this morning by Sony:

If I were Nikon or Canon, I'd be sweating bullets right about now. As good as their mirrorless cameras are, it seems to me that Sony has thrown down the gauntlet. Try to beat this, Nikon and Canon!
